Thumbs-up, thumbs-down; it's your choice

Thumbs-up to J.C. Penney for the spectacular addition of the beauty retailer, Sephora, to their Victoria Mall store.
Thumbs-up to Popeye's Fried Chicken for playing KSBJ music, and playing it loud enough for customers to hear!
Thumbs-down to people who always choose to comment negatively about everything. Try being more positive. Look on the bright side of things, and maybe you might crack a smile, be happier and get along with people.
Thumbs-down: Once again, during our national anthem at the basketball finals, some of our players and fans can't seem to look at our flag and stand at attention. It's only about three minutes. Thank you, all of the veterans who made this country great.
Thumbs-down: This is for Sue. I guess with the Weiner-dog resigning from Congress today (no offense to weiner dog owners), the swamp will start to drain. Pelosi said she was going to do it four years ago, but we really didn't expect that to happen did we?
It's time to quit blaming Bush for all of Americas woes. It's time for Obama to start taking it on the chin. What goes around comes around.
Anyway, Sue, go blow your nose. It'll get better.
